2014-04-23 15:14:28 -0500 commented question Fedora 20 'cable unplugged' error

I tried both solutions, but neither of them worked. The error 'cable unplugged' still appears, unless booting directly into Fedora.

The 'switching on' command should have been 'up', instead of 'down', right?

Hello!

It was no problem posting the outputs for those commands. I'm glad I got to 'exercise' the terminal option, which is completely new to me.

I moved the 'ifcfg-ppp0' file from its original directory and the connection works great.

But when booting into Windows and back into Fedora the 'cable unplugged' error returns.

Shutting down the PC and booting directly into Fedora makes the connection work again.

Hello, I edited my original post to contain the output for "ifconfig -a".

Please let me know if there are any other commands for which you wish to see the output!

Also, can I mark the question as 'solved'?

Hello!

Just tried the 'battery removal' solution and I'm now writing this from Fedora!

I didn't make any changes since my last comment, it just recognized that my cable was plugged in and I turned on the 'wired' connection!

Thank you very much for your help and patience in solving my issue!

Hello! Regarding the ethernet cable, I tried both ways, still no results.

When running the nm-connection-editor, from terminal, there was no connection. I created a new one, but the message is still 'cable unplugged'.

I ran the "ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*" command again:

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo        /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ppp0

And the "cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*":

I tried running a 'pppoe-setup' and then '/sbin/pppoe-status' with the following result:

Link is down (can't read pppoe PID file /var/run/pppoe-adsl.pid.pppoe)

Updated my entry with the results for "nmcli device show" command.

Hello! Just added the result for that command.

In the folder I find a file "ifcfg-lo".

Hello,

I just installed Fedora 20 on an Asus x552cl laptop. Dual boot with Windows 7.

The network connection has an 'cable unplugged' message, even though the cable is plugged in (and working in windows).

I don't really know what I'm doing, but I've seen the information requested in other similar posts:
